New Developments in Nutrition Education. Nutrition Education Series, Issue 11.
Turner, Sheila A., Ed.; Ingle, Richard B., Ed.
This monograph is an edited collection of some of the papers presented at the conference on "New Developments in Nutrition," held in London in 1983. One of the strengths of the conference was the diverse background of the participants, who represented more than thirty different countries. This diversity of interest and expertise is reflected in the texts in which those engaged in nutrition education examine, from a number of perspectives, a wide range of important issues in nutrition education. Discussions are included on the effectiveness of traditional nutrition education activities which have taken place outside the education sectors, and experiences are reviewed which have included extensive experimentation with new and different approaches, attitudes, and behaviors. The following issues and problems are addressed: (1) the importance of nutrition education; (2) teaching approaches; (3) teaching resources; (4) training and education of teachers and individuals; (5) use of mass media; (6) coordination of education agencies; (7) national and local level food and nutrition policies; and (8) evaluation of nutrition education.
